This module implements a chaining block cipher using a one way hash.  This
method of encryption is the same that is used by radius (RFC2138) and is also
described in Applied Cryptography.
Two interfaces are provided in the module.  The first is straight block
encryption/decryption the second does base64 mime encoding/decoding of the
encrypted/decrypted blocks.
The idea is that the two sides have a shared secret that supplies one of the
keys and a randomly generated block of bytes provides the second key.  The
random key is passed in cleartext between the two sides.
An example client and server are packaged as modules with this module.  They
are used in the tests. They can be found in the examples directory.
